AbstractA detailed petrographic, microstructural and geochemical investigation of pyrites from four eclogites / blueschists and their veins in the Tianshan (NW China) have revealed the occurrence of four types of pyrites: delta S-34 values of the pyrites range from -24.7 to +13.2 parts per thousand, whereby three populations can be distinguished that have distinct delta S-34 ranges corresponding to different paragenetic stages. Py pyrite grains contain micro- to nanoscale inclusions of pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, bornite, sphalerite, galena, arsenopyrite, cobalt-pentlandite, enargite, titanite, biotite, barite, and have delta S-34 values of -3.8 to +2.7 parts per thousand (average delta S-34 = 0.6 +/- 0.9 parts per thousand), which is inherited from a magmatic and hydrothermal fluid input during alteration of the oceanic crust. Py2 pyrite occurs as inclusions within the cores of garnet where it coexists with fine-grained inclusions of rutile, glaucophane and rarely with omphacite. Thus, these pyrite inclusions likely formed during prograde evolution. Py2 is too small to be analyzed by SIMS and thus no isotopic compositions could be determined. The Py3 pyrite grains contain eclogite-facies mineral inclusions, such as omphacite, glaucophane, epidote, rutile and lawsonite, and are inferred to have formed during the late prograde evolution close to or at peak eclogite-facies conditions. Py3 pyrite display positive delta(3)4S values ranging from +3.6 to +13.2 parts per thousand (average delta S-34 = +9.7 +/- 2.8 parts per thousand), suggesting the source of sulfur was either anhydrite incorporated during seafloor alteration or S-34-enriched sulfide from lower sections of the oceanic lithosphere. Py4 pyrite occurs as irregular patches, isolated euhedral to subhedral grains or as rims around Pyl or Py3 pyrites, associated with magnetite and ilmenite. Py4 grains have delta S-34 values of -24.7 to -3.9 parts per thousand (average delta S-34 = -5.0 +/- 2.1 parts per thousand), with the most likely source of sulfur being S-32-enriched pelagic sediments that in the Tianshan are interlayered with the metavolcanic lithologies and underwent amphibolite facies metamorphism during exhumation. This study provides insight into the sulfur cycle within subduction zones. We document that during subduction and exhumation fluids with distinct sulfur isotopic compositions driven by dehydration reactions in the downgoing slab cause metasomatism in the surrounding lithologies. In particular, we suggest that at least locally the plate interface is characterized by sediment-derived fluids that are characterized by S-32-enriched sulfur and comparatively higher oxygen fugacities.
